Visiting the Grand Canyon

Visiting the Grand Canyon I’ve been to the Grand Canyon several times over the years, and it never gets any less impressive. With family living in Phoenix it’s definitely within visiting distance, but don’t be fooled over how vast Arizona is. And indeed just how long it can take you to get there.
